listen to it everyday

still listening to older shows to catch up. its my go-to podcast while walking the dog. I learn some really awesome things about every science imaginable even though I am no spring chicken. Love, love, love it. The corny jokes have grown on me and I no longer groan (see what I did there....)

Annoying!!!

I understand the hosts are trying to make learning new facts, interesting but they need to stop trying so hard. I just picked up this cast and could barely get through an episode because of the lame humor. Stop it. I felt this podcast was made for preteens and younger.

Too silly and irritating for me, I’m out.👎

New to podcast

I stumbled upon this podcast and I like it. Quick bites of science. I like that the references are sourced in the notes so I can read more if I want. The banter between the hosts is a little hokey.
